Because even a Snow Queen needs a little vacation.

This Elsa is letting it go sorrynotsorry with pretty lace, an easy fit, and top-down construction that looks fabulous on the beach or over a camisole for fall wear.

It features a dropped-saddle-shoulder with a modern lace pattern running down the sleeves and center front. Subtle shaping along a diagonal results in slimming lines and a slight high-low hem that’s fashion forward without looking like it rides up.

Make it in a heavy lace for a light fabric with lots of drape, or in a true fingering weight for a firmer fabric. Directions for both a hip-length, 3/4 sleeved pullover as well as a cropped, short sleeved version are included in the pattern. The lace and faux-cable patterns are both charted and written out.

Elsa on the Beach is designed to be worn with 1-3” of positive ease at the bust. There is no waist or hip shaping. Short rows shape the shoulders so that they angle downward (no dreaded “wings” at the shoulders!) and reduce bulk at the underarms. Slim sleeves keep the look modern and sleek.
